This evening was momentous. I went to a water aerobics class with some friends… and I did not drown! Yay, me. This was a deep water class and as some of you know, I just learned–sort of–to swim in July. It was actually a lot of fun because my friends and I are just a bunch of clowns and make each other laugh for no reason. And one of the women in the class commented on how I was giggling a lot, which made her smile.
Since we were in the 12-foot section, we used flotation devices to keep from floundering. Some of us (who? me?) used multiple devices, including a belt and a noodle. My noodle and I got to know each other pretty well. We’re well past the “just good friends” stage. I even decided to name it Luigi.
The quote of the day? From my friend, “I’ve never sweat in a pool before.”
